Big Butter was formed in 1986 by brothers Mike and Tim Biskup in a fig orchard in Clovis, California. With the advent of inexpensive multi-track cassette studios the duo pumped out some truly strange music. Big Butter’s first vinyl outing caught the ears of their heroes, San Francisco’s freakish legends The Residents, whose Ralph Records picked up Big Butter releases for distribution and mail order. After four full-length albums, a slew of singles and nearly thirty years of noodling Big Butter continues to focus heavily on experimentation and abstract ideas rather than defining a particular sound.

Gangpol & Mit is a audiovisual duo that casts colourful and geometrical characters into a weird and wonderful world of digital pop. Building on their trips around the globe, from the bowels of deep France to the shores of South-East Asia, they have turned their impressive collection of outsider records into a brand new project – The Radio Minus Senior Sound System. Expect rare jewels of heavy acoustic pressures, deviant clubbing, lascivious exoticism and explicit lyrics in a brand new video set-up.
